... parks and hike and take excursions and just enjoy life. They were so funny; they would break out into song about anything, and they had great stories to tell. So much fun! I wish that I had taken their picture. I hope that I can be as active when I am their age….which isn’t that long off.

Had picnic lunch on tables kindly supplied by the lodge.

... We also saw pronghorn and heard sandhill cranes but could never find them on the hillside.
What a way to start a day. The view back over to the Tetons was gorgeous as the sun kept changing the color of the mountains as it rose. As we were leaving the area, we saw the guy we had talked to earlier that works on the reservoir and told him we had seen the wolf.
We also stopped by the Buffalo Ford station to let the guy know we ...
... We're pretty handy at those now after a fair few changes in Kenya, but had been expressly told not to touch them on a 28ft RV. In fact they don't even provide jacks... So off to phone for help, but no phone signal! Slightly ironic given the campground name.... Luckily the marina had a courtesy phone so they'll hopefully be here in the morning to fix it. Slightly scuppers our plans for an early trip to Jenny Lake, but not too much of a drama...could be far, far ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Togwotee Mountain Lodge Moran
Not the best
We stayed at Togwotee due to the fact everything else in the area was sold out. It is at the top of a pass and the altitude gave me a terrible headache. The rooms were ok but not great and they needed a good cleaning. The restaurants food was standard fare, and the preperation was not up to normal standards. Also it is way too far from the enterance to the parks of the area.
I would have written this last year but didn't find out about TripAdvisors till this summer.
We stayed one night at the Togwotee Mountain Lodge near the Grand Teton Park entrance in August. The cabins sounded so good! Well, I am very grateful we did not stay more than one night. The cabins are grouped in a tight circle with a dirt road surrounding them. The cabins are VERY close together and every time somone drives by dust billows everywhere including in your cabin windows! The cabin was cute but not real clean and very small. I think this lodge is very over priced and the description is not accurate!
We arrived in early September 2004. This is during the off-season when the lodge is preparing for the snow season. The rates were super and we had a cabin for the price if a lodge suite since the suites were being renovated at the time. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant had a buffet style breakfast and was ala cart in the evening. The food was absolutely wonderful as was the service. If you're in a hurry you're probably in the wrong place since the whole atmosphere is relaxed...so those who don't (or won't relax) may have an issue. If you want a place within reach of the best photo opportunities this is it...Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Jackson and the Bridger TetonWilderness are right there. A word of advice...when you arrive during the spring, summer and fall you'll want to rent a CONVERTIBLE...it's well worth the small extra simply for the view you get and the quick pics you can get as well...(wildlife won't wait for you to park). We plan on another trip in the Spring of the year for more photos...and to re-aquaint with the Togwotee staff. Take it easy - don't be in a hurry and do take time to relax and breath...that's what vacation is all about anyway!
This was our second trip to Togwotee Lodge. Although both the accomodations and food are good, not great, the opportunity to be in a truly gorgeous place brought us back. The lodge and cabins are surrounded by National Forest, and it is fairly remote. It is apparently snowmobile heaven in the winter, but I love the horseback riding in the summer. Rarely does one find a more beautiful place to ride--high mountain meadows literally carpeted in a riot of wildflowers and lush green forests.
The high times at togwotee
I thought it is the best time in snow. all of the people are nice and it's the best snow around. my buddys and i come in january and have never been disapointed. then some more buddys come back in feb. to catch the more set up snow,fun,fun,and more fun.and now we are all getting mountain sleds. it's a 4 month wait from today,can't wait
There were problems!
We stayed at Togwotee in mid July. We had a cabin which was very comfortable! However, there is only 1 restaurant on property and it took about 1 1/2 hours to get our meal. The bar/lounge on property was also closed. Its a long drive to any other restaurant so this is your only option. We chose to end our stay early.
Best Snowmobiling available!
Togwotee Mountain Lodge (formerly Cowboy Village at Togwotee) is THE best place to go snowmobiling. We have been there the past 8 or 9 years. Great snow, wonderful guides, good food....what more do you need. Newly remodeled lobby and new gift shop!!!
Best kept secret in Wyoming!
We stayed at one of the Cabins at Togwotee Lodge, (NOTE: It is no longer called "Cowboy Village"), in July of 2003. This place is AWESOME! Very clean, well-run and the sweetest and most helpful staff you could ever hope for! The setting is beautiful, far enough out of the hustle of Jackson Hole, (60 miles), but still close. It's 30 miles to Teton & Yellowstone Park, so it made day trips easy. Our cabin was very spacious, attractive and the food at the Lodge was great! We will be back! I can only imagine the beauty of this place in the Winter...
I have been there three times, the best snow in the country, awsome guides, nice cabins, would recommend
